I am International Expert Advisor on Implementation at Centre of Excellence for Children’s Care and Protection (CELCIS), University of Strathclyde. With key stakeholders, I support capacity building in improvement and implementation science for health, education, and social care. I support transfer of policy and legislation into real practice change across Scotland.

Main topics of interest:

Implementation-informed Service Design
Scaling Up
Competencies for Implementation Support

I came to implementation after working in state government in the United States in the child welfare, children’s mental health, and juvenile justice systems. I have coordinated and led various organizational and statewide program implementation and system improvement initiatives. At the National Implementation Research Network (NIRN), I provided implementation science expertise and led community, state, and federal initiatives to support effective practices in mental health, child welfare, education, criminal justice, and early childhood and provided leadership to build capacity of federal, state, and local partners for effective implementation of evidence-based and evidence-informed programs and policies.
